    Okay so I just got a new Blackberry Curve 8520 smartphone from Fido in Canada and I recently started adding people from all walks of life on my bbm contact list and I am have burning question that needs an answer. I have a data plan that includes unlimited texting and unlimited social networking (facebook and twitter) so am I okay to msg ppl all around the globe without it costing me a fortune?? Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums.

    I'd say that if BBM is working then your plan covers it.
    Only way to be completely sure is calling your carrier.

    Yeah, you need to check with your carrier about this. Unlike SMS, BBM is 100% data usage.

    Yeah I could always call my carrier to find out for sure. I think I have the receipt of the transaction somewhere...I'll see if I can find that. Thanks for quick reply!

    Yeah I know I have a data plan, just not sure on the specifics of it. I'll double check my receipt and see what it says on there.

    Yeah it makes sense that if I have unlimited social networking then bbm should be free internationally cuz of my data plan but I have my fone on wi-fi for the time being until I resolve this issue. Thanks!
